As said yesterday, from the round three the matches have become tougher even for the strongest teams: the number two, Allfrey, has been defeated by the sixteenth, Kent (Gunev, Rosen, Kent, Storchev). It is not an utter surprise, though: the Bulgarians are well know throughout the world; Gunev-Rosen were runner up behind Allegra at Opatija’s Champion Cup in November 2103 (Allegra lined up M. T. Lavazza, Bocchi, Madala, Duboin, Astore, and the late Guido Ferraro).
Thus Allfrey has become Once Defeated; the Team is still in, just they have been “warned” not to sin again.
“Ordinary” victories in the other seven matches of the Undefeated Pool; all the lower numbered won against the higher ones:
Lavazza – Kendrik + 61 (conceded after 24 out of 32 boards); Kent – Allfrey +20; Sinclair – Seale +11; Moran – Waterlow +48; De Bottom – Eriksen +11; Hauge – Rosen +10; Hinden – Patterson +15; Gillis – Hackett +35
Undefeated Pool’s Round Four Pairing (bold character for the lower numbered):
Lavazza – Gillis (Wojciech Gawel, Simon Gillis, Rafal Jagniewski, Erik Saelensminde)
Kent – Hinden (Jeffrey Allerton, Jon Cooke, Frances Hinden, Graham Osborne)
Sinclair – Hauge (Peter Bertheau, Rune Hauge, Tor Helness, Johan Upmark)
Moran (Rory Boland, John Carroll, Tommy Garvey, Tom Hanlon, Hugh McGann, Mark Moran), vs De Bottom (Janet de Botton, Thomas Charlsen, Thor Erik Hoftaniska, Artur Malinowski, Nick Sandqvist, Tom Townsend)
